Youth without Youth

I've been a fan of Tim Roth ever since Made in Britain by the BBC about 103 years ago, he played a member of the National Front(now rebranded as the middle-class friendly BNP, like the KKK with an English accent and no bedsheets) he was a violently racist skinhead who becomes involved with an Asian family, it's been ages since I've seen it but I seem to recall that he fell in love the with the daughter in the family. He's a hugely talented, very underrated British actor. I hope this movie finds a distributor, having Matt in it might make it an easier sell, but I think it's a little cerebral for most tastes (including my own). Marcia

Re: Youth without Youth

I don't think the movie will ever make money, but it's an interesting, ambitious project that probably helped inspire Coppola to make other movies (like the one he's already set up with Matt Dillon). But if he's not going to promote Matt's role (it's meant to be unbilled), that probably won't help sell it, except for a dedicated few.

The Al-Qaeda project sounds quirky (for again a dedicated few) - a non-fiction writer discussing his own book, with props.

Re: Youth without Youth

I think it will totally make money - 5 million is not much to make up. Even if it only makes 25-50 million, that's a pretty damned good ROI. From what I know, Matt's role is more of a cameo than anything else, but I haven't seen it yet, so I'll have to wait until it comes out like everyone else.
